What makes you a good candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
The veneer procedure requires little to no anesthetic, so it’s ideal for most patients. You will find that veneers are durable and last a long time, so you won’t need to worry about them or come in for routine visits to check how they’re fitting.

What happens during the Porcelain Veneer procedure?
The front of your teeth will be slightly buffed to make room for the new porcelain veneers. Little to no anesthetic is required during this particular process. Impressions are taken of only the front of your teeth and sent to a lab where the porcelain veneers are created for you. You’ll come back in for a second appointment so that the veneers can be placed. Dr. Melissa Schuldt will carefully line up and place the veneers and adjust them as needed. Your new veneers will last for years with routine care and maintenance.
